Stage Right Stage Wash 18 Watt x 18 LED PAR Stage Light (RGBWA-UV)
At home on medium to large stages, the addition of Amber and UV diodes give these new PAR cans a deeper, richer color hue on par (pun intended) with traditional halogen and tungsten elements. The low power requirement means that you can safely use 2-3 times as many fixtures on one breaker than with incandescent bulbs. Enjoy smooth fades and color changes with the 1.3kHz, flicker-free, dimming. Suitable for schools, houses of worship, event production, and rental houses, the all metal housing make these units robust and roadworthy. Easily useable as a plug and play stand-alone light with user defined colors and memory at power off or as a master/slave running color jump, gradient, or pulse. Fully DMX512 capable.

Questions and Answers
I was concerned with the volume of the fans in these and did a little investigating. They each have a 120mm 24v PC case fan in them. The fans are wired directly to the AC - DC converter in tandem with the rest of the logic circuitry. I suspect this was done to save costs on having another voltage regulator in the unit. I've modified one of our fixtures by adding a voltage regulator between the AC - DC converter and the fan, and pulled the voltage to the fan back to 12v. This is much much quieter, and I suspect still plenty of airflow. I'm doing some testing with one like this before I do the modification on all of the ones we purchased.
On a related note - because the fans are wired as they are, they are always on, even if you have no light output via DMX control. It would be wise to make sure you power these units down when not in use to maximize life of the fan, and in turn, the fixture.

They will hold an 8” gel frame. There is no retaining clip, but it’s an extremely tight fit, so you may not need one. As an alternative to a diffuser gel, you can easily remove the lens assembly and get pretty close to 180 degrees of light.
Construction inside and out is pretty good, though they might not hold up on the road.
Overall, I really like these units and have ordered a few more. That being said, I have some minor issues with them:
1) The fan is too loud for my installation. It has a 120mm 24VDC fan inside. At full power, it’s quite loud. They are, however, easy enough to modify to slow the fan, if you are the type that voids warranties.
2) The LEDs always ramp up in DMX mode. Although they will go to black instantly, they always turn on with a short ramp up. Depending on your application, this may or may not be acceptable. You can use the programmed modes to do instantaneous color changes, but you loose full control.
Curiously, the 8Wx7 PAR-575 units have a configuration item that controls the ramp time, but not these. I can live with this, but it would be nice to have a ramp rate setting.

I ordered 8, received 7 perfect units and one which was DOA. Though the customer service rep was a bit difficult to work with, they did overnight me a new one (needed to use them a day or two after they arrived) with me paying for it and then refunded my cost after they received the busted one I shipped back to them. They made sure to walk it through processing so I received it in time.

The casing is pretty good not up to the quality of more expensive name brand (elation). There is a pretty loud fan noise which is kinda crazy. I have them 24' up and i can hear them from front of house. We run projectors too so I have come to terms with fan noise. The only thing i don't get is that it runs always unless the unit is unplugged.
The brightness makes up for a lot! they are very bright and have a great color!
NOTE: ETC boards (i use an element) do not have a profile for this so you have to make your own. Its not to hard.
So over all not a bad light for 200 bucks it has a great punch and color. The fan is kinda annoying and I am concerned about long term reliability but I guess time will tell.
